Do you have in (farm)config.php $EnableDirectDownload = 0; ?

- if yes, remove it AFTER having read these pages:

- if no, you may wish to check your browser/proxy settings. You may have 
disabled the cache in your browser, or set a very small disk size (or your 
disk may be full). Test with another browser. I have myself had this once : 
my browser had the cache disabled.

- if still no, then this is very probably a mis-configuration with your 
hosting server.
